Findings from a recent study suggest that Type 2 diabetes mellitus remitted without medication in 46% of subjects who followed a strict, calorie-controlled diet for 1 year. Among those who lost 15 kg or more, 86% also normalized their hemoglobin A1c levels. Lesser weight losses were successful too. Remission was noted in 57% of those who lost 10-15 kg and 34% of those who lost 5-10 kg.
Weight loss conferred other benefits as well. Quality of life improved significantly, cholesterol levels declined, and about half of the subjects were able to discontinue both their antidiabetic and antihypertension prescriptions. Now thats killing many birds with one stone!
